HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Beautiful clear deep red color with a fluffy white had and weepy lacing. Nose of cookie dough cookie dough and plum/raisin with notes of notes of pepper. Nice raisin flavor with a short earthy bitterness that balances it out. Much lighter in body than either the 8 or 12 but that almost makes it nicer to drink. The malt develops as it warms. Very nice beer.

MiP (14001) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2005
Bottle. Yeasty, malty aroma with a hint of metal. Chestnut brown colour, quite stable head. Nice flavour, a little sweet, malty and hoppy. Long bitter aftertaste. I like the mouthfeel, it is creamy without being thick.

Gmku (295) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Gorgeous mousse-like head of foam on a deep ruby brown/garnet body. Smooth, some hop bitterness, spicy, clove-ish, apple fruity aroma/flavor, some caramel. Delish.

bottle. sitting at lumps computer and we each have a glass of this. pours a ruby brown with a dark cream colored head that lasts throughout. aroma is raisin, watermelon, dust and yeast. very smooth flavor that is spicy, lump mentioned ginger, i can see that, also a nice hop bitter like a weak iced tea,everything in this one mixes well. the sweet vanilla flavor that comes out as it warms is great. there is an almond flavor in the finish later on in this one also. another good beer from a good brewer

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Bottle. Very thick beige head on a dark garnet body. Nose is very musty and old. Taste-butterscotch, cherry, caramel, ginger, and apple. Very interesting layerd taste. The flavor is very smooth with a slight hop bitterness that is just right. I don’t too much care for the strong mildew/old book/dust aroma, but the flavor of the beer really makes up for it. I could easily drink this.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Pours a rich opaque nut brown with a frothy tan head into a Chimay chalice. Yeast can be seen floating on the foan. (yes, I poured it in!). Lots of thick lacing. Smell is spicy, spiced sweet apple and tart Granny Smith. Cinnamon and clove and funky yeasty aromas. Taste is much like the nose. Spicy and a bit peppery or a gingery bite to it. Fruity apple flavors and grainy. Dryish too, which is odd. Some hops if the finish and aftertaste and a little thin in the mouth compared to the general flavor explosion. Really tasty and drinkable. Does the happy monk do anything wrong? Not even a favorite style of mine and they still knocked my socks off. Highly recommended.

lamas (1425) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 3, 2005
11.2 oz. bottle. Best before: August 13, 2007. Light ruby pour with a thick, creamy light-tan head and tons of tiny floaties. Some ample lacing left on the glass. Aroma is very subtle. Some hints of strawberries. Very high carbonation that detracts from the flavoring. Nicely balanced body, but a little toward the thin, watery side. Some hints of tangy strawberries. Crisp and refreshing with some light wheaty touches.
